Studying up!! 📖
Reading over my ringette rule book and trying to quiz myself! My goal is to get through the whole book before I ref my first game! Now if only my brain would actually retain the information... its like school all over again 😅 .
You can't expect to get better if you don't consistently challenge yourself, and practice! Make mistakes as that is how you will learn, if you're not sure then ask! 👍
Just never stop learning, growing and improving! 👊👊

Update since stepping on stage about 3 weeks ago.... I am currently sitting 2lbs up from my stage weight, still wearing a size 2 jeans and maintaining my body fat %. I am slowly getting macros added weekly through my reverse dieting. From experience, I truly think post competition is harder than actual show prep. You are staying on track with lighter macros, but you do not get the gratification or motivation to remain strict as you are no longer seeing progress week to week. This is a mind game and makes it hard to stick to it. This process is nothing like my post competition from powerlifting. By this time I was already up 12lbs and eating everything in sight. I was soo unhappy with myself inside and outside. I was erasing all the hard work and progress I achieved. I have learned soo much about my mind, body and ability to cope with this post competition compared to any other. Time to bulk up, but in a healthy way this time around and keep my metabolism in high gear. #strongmomma#nevergiveup#noexcuses#momshavegoalstoo#reversediet#macros#postbikini#postcompetition#hardtomotivate#norewards#liveandlearn#timetobulk#healthyweight#fitmom#fitwife#phyxlife
So this can work!
Just don’t use an LCD with a rather low lumination like I have done.
Definitely worth exploring this to see want can be done with simply what you have. I guess the next step is a macro lens and a lightbox!
Meeting potential dates in the wild can be tough, especially for time-strapped single parents & professionals. While a “we locked eyes across the room” or “we met through friends” love story is ideal, online dating can be a fun & efficient way to meet new people. (It can also be a total shit show without enough trial & error; luckily I’ve done that legwork for you. You’re welcome). Having an honest & compelling profile helps weed out the riff-raff by presenting a quick first impression of who you are and what you’re looking for.
Some tips for improving or creating your online profile:
Make it short & sweet, including the following:
~3 things about you
~2 things about them
~1 thing you want to do together
Example (& completely hypothetical) profile blurb:
“I prefer my meat & wine red, get my street cred from book club & fantasy football, and destress in hot yoga or on a Pilates reformer. A solid match for me is someone with a strong character full of faith & assertive humility. Together, we’ll travel the world and hopefully find ways to help make it better in the process.”
^^she seems cool. 💁🏼
Highlight what makes you uniquely interesting; don’t feel like you have to appeal to everyone. It’s your individuality that will attract the right person, not that you enjoy both “nights on the town as well as quiet dinners in” or “hate drama” like EVERY OTHER PERSON. Snooze.
EDIT, for the love. Bad grammar comes across as lazy. And go easy on the emojis.
Use clear, recent photos. Of YOURSELF.
No dog portraits. No mountains. And no one wants to guess which one you are in the group photo or see your abs in your dirty bathroom mirror.
Include at least one full body, one without hats/sunglasses, & one smiling too (Do you have teeth? Would like to confirm).
Nix “can’t/must” lists, negativity/cynicism, resumes & autobiographies.
Be open to dating outside your type. Keep a sense of humor & have fun with it! Worst case, you put yourself out there, practice the art of conversation & meet some interesting people. (Actually, that’s best case. Worst case is you fall in love with a sociopath, but that’s another post).
This me!! No filter, no make up, sweaty, ready for a nap on a Thursday. BUT., I love how I have gotten things done and where my mindset will take me. Before I wouldn’t have thought of taking a no makeup picture, but know, I am happy with who I am, and how I look. I love me! So ready for 2017 to be over since it has been a total Roller coaster, but it has been a year where I have learned so much about me and a lot of things I can do that I thought I couldn’t. Getting ready for a little challenge next week that will help me for a bigger one in January 2018!!
Success can be seen as a 3P concept: patience, persistence and perspiration. While these may not seem the most powerful values for achieving success, this formula sums them and creates a great energy to fight with. Patience is everything!
Thought I’d share this because I know most of the food photos I post are “pretty”.⠀
What you don’t see is the days when shit hits the fan in my kitchen, and I’m either covered in food, have a million pots + pans in the sink, OR I do something like THIS.⠀
Green bread was not my intention, but hey, I’m ready for St. Patrick’s Day! 😂🤣⠀
Apparently, when you mix sunflower butter with baking soda, this is the result. I added a bit of lemon juice to the batter before baking, hoping it wouldn’t happen, but alas, it has.⠀
However, it smells good and *feels* like bread, so I’m gonna give it a taste 🤷🏼♀️⠀
So, the point: no such thing as perfection. Shit happens. You laugh about it and try again 😁
#tbt ✨💕📿 This was taken just minutes before I jumped off a bridge - in bungee gear!
I remember the cold and wet of the day. I had just turned 30 and my gift to me was to experience the heart-pumping adrenaline that is letting go.
But, the moment I was about to dive face first into space, I froze! I couldn’t do it. The guy working the harness, standing right behind me, would not let me turn back.
He placed his foot right behind mine so I couldn’t take a step back. Then he said these words that, to this day, come up for me when making a tough choice.
He said: you’ve come this far, what would you regret most - jumping or not jumping?
And so, I crouched down into a little ball, rolled forward onto my toes, and leapt.
Best decision I could’ve made! I screamed, cursed, and shut my eyes tight but the experience is something I will always carry with me.
So today I ask you, if you’re finding yourself between a rock and a hard place, “you’ve come this far, what would you regret most?”
